Haunting Questions !

Can you cry under water?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME stuff, why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your tush?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month.

The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and
talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a
letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her.

She dictated and I wrote:

Dear God,
Will you please take special care of our dog, Abbey? She died
yesterday and is in heaven. We miss her very much. We are happy that
you let us have her as our dog even though she got sick. I hope that
you will play with her. She liked to play with balls and swim before
she got sick. I am sending some pictures of her so that when you see
her in heaven you will know she is our special dog. But I really do
miss her.

Love, Meredith Claire

P S: Mommy wrote the words after I told them to her.

We put that in an envelope with two pictures of Abbey, and addressed
it to God in Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith
stuck some stamps on the front (because, as she said, it may take lots
of stamps to get a letter all the way to heaven) and that afternoon I
let her drop it into the letter box at the post office. For a few
days, she would ask if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that
I thought He had.

Yesterday there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch.

Curious, I went to look at it. It had a gold star card on the front
and said "To Meredith" in an unfamiliar hand.

Meredith took it in and opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers,
"When a Pet Dies".

Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God,
in its opened envelope (which was marked Return to
Sender: Insufficient address).

On the opposite page, one of the pictures of Abbey was taped under the
words "For Meredith"

We turned to the back cover, and there was the other picture of Abbey,
and this handwritten note on pink paper:

"Dear Meredith,
I know that you will be happy to know that Abbey arrived safely and
soundly in Heaven! Having the pictures you sent to me was such a big
help. I recognized Abbey right away.

You know, Meredith, she isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with
me--just like she stays in your heart--young and running and playing.

Abbey loved being your dog, you know.
Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any
pockets!--so I can't keep your beautiful letter. I am sending it to
you with the pictures so that you will have this book to keep and
remember Abbey.

One of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope the little book
helps. Thank you for the beautiful letter. Thank your mother for
sending it.

What a wonderful mother you have! I picked her especially for you.
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.
By the way, I am in heaven but wherever there is love, I am there also.
Love, God and the special angel who wrote this after I told her the words."

As a parent and a pet lover, this is one of the kindest things that
I've ever experienced. I have no way to know who sent it, but there is
some very kind soul working in the dead letter office. I just wanted to
share this act of compassion.

My new picture is fabulous. My Mommie cried when INKY DINKY DOODLE'S Mommy sent me the picture with my Heavenly wings! It is just so beautiful! And my Mommie, still, after all these years loves me and misses me. She doesn't have a dog now. She would if she could have me back. But, of course, she knows that is imposssible.
I was her first baby...even before she had children. And she always loved me as much as the two babies that came after.
The day I disappeared from her life, was one of the most terrible days of her life. She did everything humanely possible to get me back, but, I wasn't able to be found. I am sorry Mommie, 'cuz I wanted to be there. They wouldn't let me come home.
I love you.
Again, thanks to Inky Dink's Mom, we have this wonderful memory on our page. And I can fly and play with all the other doggies. And, it is so much easier to fly down to see my Mommie!!! I can give her a little kiss on the cheek!

Where do pets come from?

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the
answer to "Where do pets come from?"
Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked
with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here,
and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."
And G od said, I will create a companion for you that will be with
you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will
love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or
childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as
you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.
And it was a good animal.
And God was pleased.
And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he
wagged his tail.
And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the
Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."
And God said, " I have created this new animal to be a reflect ion
of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you
will call him DOG."
And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and
loved them.
And they were comforted.
And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and
said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and
preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog
has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."
And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with
them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of
their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.
And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's
eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.
And Adam and Eve learned humility.
And they were greatly improved.
And God was pleased .
And Dog was happy.
And Cat didn't give a darn one way or the other.

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The
man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly
occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking
beside him had been dead for years. He wondered
where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone
wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine
marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by
a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.
When he was standing before it he saw a
magnificent gate in the arch that looked like
mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate
looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward
the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a
desk to one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse
me, where are we?"

"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the
man asked.

"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some
ice water brought right up."

The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come
in, too?" the traveler asked.
"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."
The man thought a moment and then turned back
toward the road and continued the wa y he had been
going with his dog.
After another long walk, and at the top of
another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading
through a farm gate that looked as if it had never
been closed. There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside,
leaning against a tree and reading a book.
"Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have
any water?"
"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in."
"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured
to the dog.
"There should be a bowl by the pump."
They went through the gate, and sure enough, there
was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.
The traveler filled the water bowl and took a
long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.
When they were full, he and the dog walked back
toward the man who was standing by the tree.
"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.
"This is Heaven," he answered.
"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The
man down the road said that was Heaven, too."
"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and
pearly gates? Nope. That's hell."
"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your
name like that?"
"No, we're just happy that they screen out the
folks who would leave their best friends behind."

Menu Foods said Saturday it is recalling dog food sold under 46 brands and cat food sold under 37 brands and distributed throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. The pet foods were sold by major retailers, including Wal-Mart, Kroger and Safeway.
A complete list of the recalled products along with product codes, descriptions and production dates is available from the Menu Foods website, . Consumers with questions can also call (866) 895-2708.
"At this juncture, we're not 100 percent sure what's happened," said Paul Henderson, the company's president and chief executive officer. However, the recalled products were made using wheat gluten purchased from a new supplier, since dropped for another source, spokeswoman Sarah Tuite said. Wheat gluten is a source of protein.
An unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about 10 died after eating the affected pet food, Menu Foods said in announcing the North American recall. Product testing has not revealed a link explaining the reported cases of illness and death, the company said.
The recall covers the company's "cuts and gravy" style food, which consists of chunks of meat in gravy, sold in cans and small foil pouches between Dec. 3 and March 6.
The pet food was sold by stores operated by the Kroger Co., Safeway Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and PetSmart Inc., among others, Henderson said.
The company said it makes pet food for 17 of the top 20 North American retailers. It is also a contract manufacturer for the top branded pet food companies, including Procter & Gamble Co.
P&G announced Friday the recall of specific 3 oz., 5.5 oz., 6 oz. and 13.2 oz. canned and 3 oz. and 5.3 oz. foil pouch cat and dog wet food products made by Menu Foods but sold under the Iams and Eukanuba brands. The recalled products bear the code dates of 6339 through 7073 followed by the plant code 4197, P&G said.
Menu Foods' three U.S. and one Canadian factory produce more than 1 billion containers of wet pet food a year. The recall covers pet food made at company plants in Emporia, Kan., and Pennsauken, N.J., Henderson said
Henderson said the company received an undisclosed number of owner complaints of vomiting and kidney failure in dogs and cats after they had been fed its products. It has tested its products but not found a cause for the sickness.
"To date, the tests have not indicated any problems with the product," Henderson said.
The company alerted the Food and Drug Administration, which already has inspectors in one of the two plants, Henderson said.
Menu Foods is majority owned by the Menu Foods Income Fund, based in Ontario, Canada

Commentary on the Pledge of Allegiance
by Red Skelton

I - - Me; an individual; a committee of one.
Pledge - - Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.
Allegiance - - My love and my devotion.
To the Flag - - Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of Freedom; wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody's job.
United - - That means that we have all come together.
States - - Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that is love for country.
And to the Republic - - Republic--a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands
One Nation - - One Nation--meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible - - Incapable of being divided.
With Liberty - - Which is Freedom; the right of power to live one's own life, without threats, fear, or some sort of retaliation.
And Justice - - The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.
For All - - For All--which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.
And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: Under God.

Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that would be eliminated from schools, too?

I know it was Christmas down there on Earth yesterday. Oh, how I wish I were still there with my Mommy. I know she still thinks of me because she was telling her friend about me the other day.
I remember Christmas and how much fun it was. Mom always bought me red toys and Bobbie, my brother, got another color. Bobbie really wasn't into Christmas like me. I loved to open gifts...anyone's gifts! One time Mom and Dad and Gramma left for the evening and when they came back, it looked like a tornado had hit! There was gift wrapping everywhere! I had a heck of a time getting to my red squeaky toys, they were way behind the tree. But, get to them I did! I worked my way from the front, smelling and checking them out....till success! I smelled a squeaky toy! I opened it, but, saw that it was not was blue. So, I found a few more and opened them, and sure enough, there was two red toys, just for me! Well, I only opened about four toys, but, it looked like I had annihilated everything under the tree. I thought, OPPS! I am in BIG trouble! So, I went in the bedroom to hide out.
When Mom and Dad came in the door, I heard a big gasp and an OH NO!
I cringed, thinking that she was gonna yell for sure! But, then pretty soon I heard a bunch of laughing! Mom said, "It looks like Sunni has been busy!" Now, how did she know it was me?
I came out with a big smile on my face and she gave me a hug and asked how I liked my toys. She said I was a naughty dog....but, at least I didn't open her presents!
Yup, sometimes I wish I were there. I would like to share just one more day with her to show her how much I love her still.
